Notificato Build Status of Master

Notificato takes care of push notifications in your PHP projects.

Italian: notificato è: participio passato English: notified

Why use Notificato instead of X?

Notificato has some advantages not all other PHP push libraries have:

  1. Supports multiple APNS certificates, so you can push to multiple Apps/Passbook Passes
  2. Takes excellent care of PHPs buggy SSL-sockets, handles quirks and error responses correctly
  3. Well tested with unit tests and nice Object-Oriented structure


Installation with Composer is recommended. Run the require command to add Notificato to your project:

composer require wrep/notificato

Suggestion: There is also a Notificato for Symfony bundle available, highly recommended for Symfony2 & Symfony3 users.

Getting started

  1. Take a look at the snippet below for a impression how Notificato works
  2. Read the documentation it will help you with common use cases
  3. Check out the API docs for a deeper understanding what Notificato is capable of
// This imports the Composer autoloader

use Wrep\Notificato\Notificato;

class GettingStarted
	 * This example sends one pushnotification with an alert to Apples production push servers
	public function sendOnePushNotification()
		// First we get a Notificato instance and tell it what certificate to use as default certificate
		$notificato = new Notificato('./certificate.pem', 'passphrase-to-use');

		// Now we get a fresh messagebuilder from Notificato
		//  This message will be send to device with pushtoken 'fffff...'
		//  it will automaticly be associated with the default certificate
		//  and we will set the red badge on the App icon to 1
		$message = $notificato->messageBuilder()

		// The message is ready, let's send it!
		//  Be aware that this method is blocking and on failure Notificato will retry if necessary
		$messageEnvelope = $notificato->send($message);

		// The returned envelope contains usefull information about how many retries where needed and if sending succeeded
		echo $messageEnvelope->getFinalStatusDescription();

	 * This example reads all unregistered devices from Apples feedback service
	public function readFeedbackService()
		// First we get the a Notificato instance and tell it what certificate to use as default certificate
		$notificato = new Notificato('./certificate.pem', 'passphrase-to-use');

		// Now read all "tuples" from the feedback service, be aware that this method is blocking
		$tuples = $notificato->receiveFeedback();

		// The tuples contain information about what device unregistered and when it did unregister.
		//  Don't forget to check if the device reregistered after the "invaidated at" date!
		foreach ($tuples as $tuple)
			echo 'Device ' . $tuple->getDeviceToken() . ' invalidated at ' . $tuple->getInvalidatedAt()->format(\DateTime::ISO8601) . PHP_EOL;

$gettingStarted = new GettingStarted();
